    For most of us, the start of September means back to school, back to work, and the return of the pumpkin spice latte – but for our Jewish friends in Hoboken + Jersey City, the end of summer means it’s time for the Jewish New Year.

    Arielle, a lifelong Jersey girl, has been “the crafty friend” for as long as anyone can remember. She is always working on something, whether it be a knitting project, a homemade card, or a delicious dinner - because why buy when you can DIY? When she’s not creating something new, Arielle can be found down the shore with her husband, laughing way too hard at her own jokes, reading whatever historical books she can get her hands on, or enjoying a beer or a bourbon with friends!
